Being propelled by the teachable moment

All parents of a child with a disability, I’ll bet, have let the moment slide at one point or another. You hear it and for whatever reason, you don’t respond. And then you suffer pangs of guilt for allowing ignorance to linger out there. Not just about your child, but about people with disabilities generally. You think of all kinds of things to say, things you should have said, and you torture yourself for not speaking up. That’s how this dad from Nova Scotia felt. But he did something about it.

If you don’t feel like giving this Dad, and his son, a hug or at least a good hearty handshake after reading this, you need to get your heart checked out.

Meet Turner and his pretty cool dad Robb.
